Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular nutrition includes anything involving the heart from a pressure problem (high blood pressure) to a plumbing problem (high cholesterol, triglycerides, stroke due to blockage). The heart is one of the most powerful organs in our body and deserves special attention. A healthy lifestyle pattern may prevent more than 75% of all deaths due to cardiovascular disease.

You have the power to change or prevent your risk of a heart condition with the choices you make each day. Oxidative stress and systemic inflammation that damage your vessels are modifiable by nutrition.

During our visit we provide a comprehensive assessment of your lifestyle and individual eating patterns to develop a diet plan tailored specific to your heart condition, rich in anti-inflammatory foods, utilizing components of the Mediterranean Diet complete with healthy fats and specific heart-healthy nutrients.

These are some of the conditions we commonly work with:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol or Triglycerides
  • Fatty Liver
  • Anti-inflammation
  • Plant-based eating
  • Stroke prevention
Melissa is really excellent at what she does and is a pleasure to work with. I appreciate her use of technology as well as her use of lab diagnostics -- not just shooting in the dark for solutions! I would recommend her to anyone looking to either improve their health using nutrition or to help address a medical issue that could benefit from nutritional advice and support. Thank you! — Scott H., Longmont
